The Reds and Triple-A Louisville announced Thursday night that they have signed a two-year extension to their player development contract that will now run through the 2016.
The previous affilation agreement was set to expire after the 2014 season.
Louisville became the Reds top-tiered farm club in 2000. That was also the same season that Louisville Slugger Field opened.
The agreement with the Louisville Bats came as the Reds stopped at Louisville Slugger Field during the Caravan.
